Dad's day-take time to enjoy being with your

   Sunday is father's day. Most of us will hand dad a shirt or necktie he doesn't need and probably won't ever wear.
   But the real importance of this day is spending time with your father. Whether you throw the baseball around, play golf or just sit around in the backyard and enjoy each other's company.
   You'll never know how much your father means to you until you lose him. My dad has been gone 23 years and I still think of him every day.
   Father's day used to be difficult for me to get through because of all the memories. But that's what we're left with is plenty of memories.
   Some of them funnier than others, but it's really all we have left. That and some pictures and perhaps a few odds and ends that were left to us.
   So if your dad is still with you, be sure and spend some time with him not only Sunday, but every other day you have a chance.
   Someday you'll be glad you did.
